Buying an australian saddle horse
Buying an australian saddle horse is a huge investment, or rather spending. Then again, there are the cheaper types or the more expensive types. Typically though, if you are more into cars than australian horses, then maybe this animal rearing is not for you. They easily cost more than a car. Add to that the upkeep of it and other cost such as a stable and australian saddles and you get the big picture.
Those that are buying an australian saddle horse are mostly people who are allergic to other pets, such as the all common dogs in most farms around. Also, some prefer animals with longer lifespan than the 10 years average for dogs and so they want to keep australian horses.
Australian horses can be imported or locally bought. But you do know, imported horses can almost never be cleared by the customs. Furthermore, there's the cost of shipping, container cost etc. Locally bought horses are better. Futhermore, there are different breeds to chooose from such as Arabian or Brumby. Before buying any animal though, do bear in mind that a pet is a lifetime of commitment!
